Well, it is that time of year when I do not pay close attention to anything other than the plans in my head of trying to concoct feasible ideas of what I will purchase for ten little boys with 13 years difference from the oldest to the youngest.   Some are so close in age that the gifts should be the same, or we have one wishing he had...

Well, we all sat down to turkey and ham with all the trimmings on Thanksgiving Day.   As we talked around our tables of 20 adults, three teenagers, and seven younger boys, we all expressed what we were thankful for this year as well as years passed.  Of course, the older family members were grateful for health, peace of mind,...

Yes, it is that time of year once again when we all begin to envision our Thanksgiving tables.  The turkey dishes will need to be run through the dishwasher; the Gorham silver will need to be dipped and polished; the crystal serving dishes need to be sparkling clean.  I will press all of the real cloth napkins, those embossed with a...

Although some people are cat people, some are dog people, and some are even snake people, I prefer dogs.   There is someone in my family who is definitely a dog person, and her family readily agrees on this matter of preference.  They have five dogs that co-exist with their family of four people. The dogs range in size from three...

A few of us were talking about the job market the other day.

If you were making nothing per hour, that would be $7...

I have all of my life been somewhat of an activist.  I have always jumped on the bandwagon if an idea needs to go to fruition with banner success.  I have served on many committees in our hometown that have been triumphant.   I have this innate characteristic to never be able to say “NO” to anything asked of me....

Growing up in Kosciusko, many of us are familiar with Munson’s Crossing. It is located at the end of Knox Road, a few yards from where the Old Moose Lodge stood.   Churches had hayrides that would end there with a bonfire and wiener roasts, families enjoyed picnics and even some young “adventurers” were asked to leave...

I have told you about the old Strain House that my grandfather, on my Price side, lived in when I was young.  It was an old civil war home and in the day time, quite neglected, but in the dark of night it was completely frightening (this was a pre-Civil War homestead). At my young age, it looked many years older than the hundred or so...

I realize that life is full of changes.     As I watched the transformation of the old A & A Grocery store building as it was uncovered from the many facades it has held throughout the years, I was reminded of the Saturday afternoons my friends and I would saunter around the court square.  I am not sure what our exact...
